The Zoodinos website states: ‘Dinosaurs come alive for kids in our new Dinosaurs book series from Zoobooks. Each edition in the Dinosaur series follows the award-winning Zoobooks approach: combining spectacular scientifically-correct illustrations and vibrant photos. Simple, interactive text encourages discussion and learninG.”
I am actually very impressed with these magazines and my homeschooled grandchildren will have a blast learning about dinosaurs from these colorful, well written magazines.
There are poems and stories that are fun and interesting. The pictures are very realistic and engaging. A plethora of scientific information adding fact to fictional stories bring the dinosaur era alive for young aspiring minds. Continue reading
Hemp spray for removing acne scars and healing skin….naturally.
This is a metal bottle that has a spray solution in it that you use after you have washed and dried your face to be able to get the full effects of healing from it. The ingredients are Aloe Vera water, sweet almond oil, witch hazel, German blue chamomile oil, lavender essential oil, vitamin E oil, polysorbate, germaben II preservative, distilled water, melaleuca tea tree oil, elite fractionally distilled hemp extract (250 mg Canabidoil Complex), so you can see that there are a number of wonderful healing ingredients in this solution. There is a total of 2.7 oz in this misting spray bottle.
To use, you shake the bottle really well to mix up the contents and spray it on. I would test it on your wrist first, to see if you have any negative reactions to it, that’s what I did. I have sensitive skin and had no problems.
There is an essential oil scent to it as tea tree oil does have a strong scent, but the lavender in the solution counteracts it. I thought it would have a consistency like water but it is more like dry oil. I sprayed it on the underside of my arm to test and expected it to pretty much dry to nothing but had a chuckle when my arms are sticking to my desk so it’s interesting typing this LOL.
I would recommend using this at bedtime on your face or wherever you have acne or skin problems you are working on healing. It is easy to use and effective…and no, the smell does not soften and go away, it stays so don’t try to use this and go out for the day, you are going to smell like tea tree oil – not unpleasant but it does have a scent like you used a household cleaner.
Don’t you love it when the UPS truck shows up? This time it brought me my pink feather earrings I have been waiting for.
These earrings are actually made with 3 feathers on each earring, the largest feather is pink and there is a yellow feather that is shorter on top of that and the top feather is a gorgeous reflective peacock feather.
These earrings are handmade and the feathers are bound together with a silver coil at the top of them.
The post type is a fish hook style which I will probably switch for a leverback so I won’t accidentally lose them if the earring gets pushed out of my ear, caught in my long blonde hair.
The brand is Kisspat and their handcrafted artisan jewelry is really very well done I bought them here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073PX8LFC Continue reading
Great value for the money, these headphones are uber comfortable and have amazing sound quality.
These are super comfortable headphones with phenomenal sound. I am sitting here jamming out to “Sunshine in my Pocket” music and the bass
is great, the treble is clear and the beat just keeping me going. It
It was so easy to bluetooth these headphones, I just slid the power button to the right and waited until it flashed red and blue, then I went to my iPhone 6 plus to the bluetooth setting and the headphones
immediately bluetoothed. I am very happy with these awesome headphones and am working better with music that I can actually hear properly. Continue reading
These threader earrings are so delicate and pretty. The back of the earrings is silver and the front is a bright blue.
If you look at them from the sides, they are clear cubes, so it depends on what angle you are looking at the earrings from as to what color they are.
From the front, they are a clear sky blue that is absolutely beautiful.
These earrings are worn by sliding the chain through the ear and there is a clear plastic stopper that I can slide on the earrings to keep them the length that I want them to be.
I can make them longer by allowing more of the chain to dangle from the front of my earlobe for I can pull some of the chain back through the plastic stop to make them shorter. I usually wear them with the stopper halfway up the chain. Continue reading
This backpack is very well made from durable material and the stitching is excellent. There are no loose threads anywhere. There are a variety of pockets of various sizes.
This backpack is one of my favorites because of the security pocket for my wallet and plane tickets are easily accessible to me, but not to anyone else. The pocket is right over my lower back on the inside of the backpack so I just slide my hand between my back and the backpack, grab the pull tab on the zipper and easily open the pouch to get my ID and airline tickets.
The straps are all padded and very comfortable. There is a lot of room inside the backpack with diverse pockets and spaces for everything I need to fit. Continue reading
This is a good anti-theft backpack with the embedded zipper in the
front pocket and zipper placed under the flap on the stop. This
backpack is great for carrying my laptop and looks business like with
its minimalistic design.
The material it is made of will hold up well to constant use and the
color hides the dirt.
The inner lining is a pretty teal color and is much better than the
traditional black lining that makes everything disappear into a black
hole. This color will help me find what I need quicker.
The handle on top is comfortable and easy to grab when I am in a hurry.
The straps are padded and intelligently designed with a black mesh
backing for comfort.
There are three panels of padding on the back of the backpack to
provide protection for my laptop.
The only negative comment I have is that since the backpack was made
to make it harder for thieves to steal things from it, the enclosed
zipper is a bit of a struggle to pry it out of the enclosed flap and
dig the zipper out of the channel. That’s the trade off you get when
you try to make it harder for others to get into your backpack, it
also makes it harder for you, and takes longer to access what is in
the backpack. Continue reading
When traveling it is important to be able to get up and going quickly in the morning. With this travel bag, it is easy for me to find exactly what I want and get ready for the day quickly. It is also simple for me to put things away in the bag, zip it up and toss it in my suitcase. There are places for my brushes so they aren’t just sitting in the bottom of a bag tangled up with everything else, and even places to put eyeliner pencils, mascara and hair accessories.

I am really thrilled with my new TOCODE sports camera. As I unboxed it and realized just how many accessories came with it, I got more and more excited.
Everything was packed carefully and in their own individual zip lock bags. The case it came in was a high quality very well made case with Styrofoam cut own protection inside the case for everything to fit into place.
The camera has four modes – video, photo, time lapse and burst photo mode. In burst photo mode the camera takes 3 photos in 1.5 seconds.
To charge the battery on the camera I used the included USB charger and cable and plugged it into the power strip on the back of my work table. I did notice that the camera got very hot to the touch when charging but cooled off fairly quickly when it was unplugged. Continue reading
I got the prettiest wind chime that is made of lovely clear nicely detailed hummingbirds. What is even better is that it is a solar wind chime that lights up! The humming birds stay lit for up to 8 hours when the wind chime has fully charged by the sun through the solar panel that the hummingbirds are suspended from. Continue reading
These earbuds are comfortable, easy to use, lightweight and stay put.
These earbuds are so convenient and comfortable.
When I got them, the first thing I did was put the smallest tip on the earbud so it sat in
my ear properly.
With the loop over the top of the ear, my earbuds stay in the ear easily instead of falling out.
The left earbud is the main one and I can use it while the other one is charging. I love the
carry case they come in so I can keep it handy in my purse.
One of the things I love about this set is that there are no double sets of tangled cords because the earbuds come with a USB split cord for convenience. These earbuds are lightweight so I can wear them for a long time without any problems, The sound is acceptable and phone calls are clear.
The instruction paper that came with it is easy to understand and has
visual aids as well as text. Continue reading
This personal safety alarm is LOUD and lightweight so it can easily be tucked in my pocket when I am going out by myself to secure the property, especially at dusk. There is a convenient mini flashlight on the end that you turn on by pushing the small oval button. It can go on a keychain or simply hang it by the door to grab when you need it. Continue reading
This is a beautiful tennis bracelet made with Swarovski crystals. There are two links on the bracelet so I can remove an extender to make it just the right size for my granddaughter’s wrist and then when I want to wear it, I add the link back on to make the bracelet bigger. Continue reading
This CD player is very impressive for the quality of sound, versatility, and ease of use. It can be wall mounted and comes with the hardware and mounting plate on the back of the CD player but I prefer to … Continue reading
Sugar just got a new pet car seat. It’s pretty convenient as it can be unzipped to be used as a cover for the seat in my vehicle so her hair doesn’t get all over it, or it can be zipped up and make a box type seat for her to sit in. The back is rubberized so it stays put and doesn’t slide around and it is really well made with good stitching and quality materials. Yay for a cleaner vehicle! You can read more about it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073Z8LH4D #tomoson #ad

These glasses will help me be able to see the first solar eclipse in 38 years and be comfortable while I am doing it. The glasses came and I took them out of the bag to see just what they were actually like. They were individually packaged – all 10 of them – and appear to be well made. I was surprised to see that the ‘lenses’ part of the glasses actually looked like smooth, thick aluminum foil to me. I guess I expected them to look more like green plastic sunglass lenses. The glasses themselves are cardboard and in red, white and blue colors. They look fun and festive.
What I really like about these eclipse glasses, apart from being able to see the eclipse, is that they are also keepsakes. There is a place on the inside of the glasses to put your name and mark the time you got to see the eclipse. I am aware that you can only look directly at the sun for no more than 3 minutes at a time with these, but it sure beats staring through old negatives, which a lot of folks in this digital age don’t even have lying around anymore.

This smart watch has a nice design and interface so it is easy to use. The face of the watch is easy to see. You can choose your own style of watch faces, and personally, I like the minimalist watch … Continue reading
These binoculars are easy to adjust to make them perfect for watching birds, wildlife or even checking on livestock. They have dual adjustments on both sides of the binoculars, not just one.
At only 8.3 ounces, these binoculars are perfect to take hunting, out to sporting events or tuck in your backpack for a bird watching adventure at the beach.
Fogproof and waterproof because of the design using nitrogen, these binoculars have a rubberized coating so they function in any weather and are easy to hang on to.
They fold to a more compact size for easy storing in the cloth case that comes with them. Continue reading
This fun face painting kit has 12 colors in it but the colors are unlimited because you can mix them to make the colors you want.
It comes with an artist quality paintbrush, however, you can use your own paint brushes you have on hand to create a variety of shading and shapes.
The paint comes in tubes and is easy to use. Add a little water to adjust the density of the paint to get the paint exactly the way you want it. The paint stays put after it has dried and kids love the fun colors.
While this paint is non-toxic, the makers suggest that if you have sensitive skin, this kit may not be for you. The paints are easy to use and fun to work with. #iMustech
